The movie as we now have it is without its original opening sequence, which was cut; apparently, it depicted the Lord being murdered while on crusade and his squire fleeing to Sherwood Forest on his horse. As it is, the movie now opens with him riding into the forest on horseback and his identity is never revealed. See more »
Friar Tuck's journey from Sherwood to Bawtry was done in the day; excellent timing as the journey is 68 miles there and back. See more »
The movie begins and ends with a short song so as to be consistent with the TV series. The song at the end of the movie goes something like this: "And so Robin and his lady/returned to Sherwood Forest,/There to stay evermore." See more »
I'm a great fan of Robin Hood and maybe being too critical of this film given its time of making. But it was hard work, it reminded me of a school play, it was enjoyable purely from a look back at how they used to do films sort of way. Peter Cushing and Oliver Reed will certainly have looked back at this film and have a quiet chuckle on how bad it was and ameteur. I'm trying not to be too critical and let it get away with being an innocent and OK film but the more i think about it the more i find myself wandering why i bothered to watch it. I suppose the reason being that after watching an hour i thought i might as well see it through. The language sorted of drifted from modern day to olde English, if its raining and there's nothing else to watch then give it a go but don't get too comfy or you will drift off.
